Northern Rovers

LR Series l's 86"

Launceston based freelance writer and all round nice bloke John Dean is also a mad keen Land Rover owner and enthusiast. Currently in his Northern kingdom are a continually growing collection of Series 1’s …his camo cracker of a daily driver Series 3 …and (my personal favourite) a ’74 two door Range Rover.

I decided a recent trip ‘up North’ to accompany John on a shoot for a future LRO article (more on that at a later date…) would also be the perfect opportunity to check out his collection.

Here’s a few snaps… I think I could’ve stayed in that paddock forever, thanks Mr. Dean!





It’s Series-ous

Land Rover Series 1 Scale Model

As I was up the East Coast of Tasmania, I decided to pop along to the township of St. Mary’s 10th Community Car & Bike Show. It was the first time I’d attended the event and while there I was stoked to meet and chat briefly with Richard Edmunds about this, his fantastic 5/8ths scale 1950 Land Rover Series 1 that he’d built himself. Yes, you read that right, a 5/8ths scale model of a Series 1 that he built himself over 4 years …and its fully operational! The ingenuity of the man knows no bounds!

Check it out, I was gobsmacked!
